More medieval violence and sex

I'm about to take a summer break from posting translations of the medieval novel Amadis of Gaul. Today's chapter is the last one until September.

Chapter 35 begins with gripping suspense as Amadis searches for Princess Oriana, his true love. She's been kidnaped by the evil sorcerer Arcalaus and his men as part of his scheme to take over the Kingdom of Great Britain. The chapter ends with one of the most beautiful and joyful passages of the novel.
